Swirls of Wool


I've been working on a smaller scale of my Scrappy Swirly Pins to make into pendants, bracelets and possibly earrings. I layer several pieces of recycled wool onto each other and roll to make this swirly effect. For about a week, I've been developing a technique to keep the wool pieces from separating and I'm pretty happy with the results. This pendant is 3/4" round swirl of wool, that hangs on a very large ball chain. Sturdy and Sweet.

This swirl bead pendant is a bit of a contrast from the previous necklace because of the smooth snake chain and the beautiful faceted glass turquoise bead that delicately hangs.

Here I'm using my two most favorite mediums of wire and wool.

  2. I like it a lot. I especially like your wire wrapping job on the bead, that was definitely the way to go.
